A renegade Guinean soldier was solely responsible for massacring protesters at a rally last September, an inquiry backed by the ruling junta has said. The probe blamed Lt. Aboubakar Toumba Diakite - a soldier who shot and wounded junta leader Capt. Moussa Dadis Camara last December. It cleared Camara of involvement – contradicting the findings of an earlier UN inquiry. Camara is still recovering from the shooting in Burkina Faso. The BBC’s West Africa correspondent says with so many other inquiries arriving at conclusions contrary to this one, many people will not take it seriously. Human rights groups say that at least 157 activists were killed and dozens of women raped during a pro-democracy rally at football stadium on Sept. 28 last year. (BBC)
